The Practice is ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS for office, video/chat/online, and onsite services in both the District of Columbia and Florida
REAL TIME INSURANCE BILLING @TALKIFUWANT!
The practice bills health insurance in one of two ways: 1) using real time electronic billing to your carrier or 2) generating the needed record for clients to submit. Because the practice uses advanced private practice digital technology, we are able to electronically bill your insurance company at the time of your session! Unlike other billers, using either paper forms or billing agents, this practice utilizes “point of session insurance claims billing.” This means re-imbursements to clients come much faster and there is a digital footprint of the claim submission and its acceptance by the carrier meeting their claims processing requirements. And for those clients who wish to submit their own claims, the required document is printed at the time of the session, ready for clients to submit. In either regard, billing insurance is now faster than ever, with real time “point of session” electronic billing or point of session document generation for clients to bill. *
USING A HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT CREDIT CARD?
Because the practice is registered as a mental health services company with merchant services for credit cards, the practice does accept and bill HSA cards at the time of the session! This is an added service to help clients better manage healthcare costs and benefits.
*Note: You will enter your health insurance and HSA card information when scheduling your first appointment using our online secure server (accessible 24 hours a day). Electronic filing set up time may be required at or during the first session, such that your first claim may not be submitted real time; subsequent claims are real time. The practice assesses an electronic claims processing and handling fee per month for out of network insurance billing services. This fee is discussed in the initial consultation. Clients who utilize insurance should consult their carrier and policies for services that are covered in the office, online and/or onsite prior to being seen!
INSURANCE BILLING, DIAGNOSIS AND SOME PROS AND CONS
Not everyone cares about what information is shared with their insurance company, even as all providers who bill insurance share the same basic information. The same basic information? Yes, since it is required by insurance carrier in order to bill them and to justify medically necessary payments. There are certain laws that come into play with insurance billing and general privacy rules particularly for digital services, and even social media policies (see Practice Privacy Statement, Social Media Policy Statement, Patient Bill of Rights )If you’re interested in learning more about what health information is shared with your carrier you learn some of the basics (along with the pros and cons of diagnosis) by clicking here. Too, during the initial consultation all your questions and concerns can be discussed as you proceed!

“Clients have been getting better here since 2005 with shorter service times and improved outcomes because of self scheduling (even before the digital server technology) and because the treatment planning documents are built with the client goals in mind! With Healthgrades reviews being some of the highest in the US I’m proud to see people get better and then move on to tell others about their time here.” —- Kurt LaRose
